Optimus Solid & Sky Rocket
« on: April 22, 2015, 10:12:17 AM »
Got a message from my distributor today about a couple of new balls coming out, optimus solid and sky rocket.

I had a feeling that we would be seeing a solid Optimus pretty soon but wasn't sure if they would release a hybrid first. 

US release date for both is 22nd June.

I can't wait to get my hands on the Optimus Solid, i did like the original Optimus but found it too condition specific and a little jumpy for my liking, I'm hoping that the solid cover will solve that issue.

As for the Sky rocket, I've found that the original is useful after the lanes start to break down and at the moment can't see that i would have the need for it.  But saying that I'll probably somehow still end up drilling one up...  :-\

Me too. I'm not really a fan of the color. I hope it doesn't turn out like the Taboo Spare

My gf has the first Optimus and I'm not the biggest fan of it's color scheme, but I have to say that I like the looks of the solid better. I know she likes her ball and is trying hard to convince me to come to the Storm side. LOL...I'm a DV8 man for now!

Right probably.  I liked that release show, i was like a kid watching Saturday morning cartoons, except more like a mobidly obese 20something with a spending problem that hordes bowling balls...

I sense a Columbia 300 influence in the color scheme

I'm starting to think it can only look better.  The pictures has shadows of black which is not a listed color.  Even so, it has the earmarks of being a technicolor nightmare.  They could borrow from smuckers..."with a color scheme like this, it has to be good"

I don't know why Storm is releasing the Sky Rocket after releasing the Rocket Power (both R2S Pearl)...

As far as Roto Grip goes... I think there will be a new solid with the Cage core  ;)
Starting 5:

Crux Formula, Golden Gate, Super Idol, IQ Tour Rising, Pitch Red
